Full Details

Beautifully renovated and refurbished by the current owners to an extremely high standard, this gorgeous 1930s semi-detached family home offers ample open plan, flexible space. Retaining many original features, the property sits in the popular residential area of West Knighton. Bamboo floors downstairs are complemented by attractive fireplaces and double-glazed bay windows that flood the house with light.

At the front, a paved driveway provides off-road parking and adjacent is the front lawn surrounded by a mature tree, shrubs and hedges, bound by a low brick wall. A glazed door leads into an entrance vestibule, ideal for coats and shoes. The charming front door with a leaded light glazed panel opens into the wide entrance hall. The stairs with wood treads and a handrail guide you upstairs and beneath is a storage cupboard and the cloakroom, which has a low-level WC and wash hand basin.

From the hall is the warm and inviting living room with a bay window that overlooks the front garden. Central to the room is the delightful Portuguese limestone fireplace in which sits a log burner on a deep tiled hearth with a surround and mantel. Within the alcoves on either side are fitted shelves and on the left is a cupboard with double doors. Beautiful glazed doors open out into the breakfast/dining room, which also has a bay window that incorporates a door to the garden, and there are fitted shelves on either side of the chimney breast.

This superb room is open plan to the kitchen, which has a range of wall, base and drawer units providing plenty of storage space with wood style work surfaces above. There is a stainless steel single drainer sink unit with mixer tap, which sits below the window giving you views over the garden. Integrated appliances include a double oven with a halogen hob and extractor hood above, while there is a built-in fridge/freezer.

The staircase takes you to the first-floor galleried landing, which has a spectacular stained glass window. The landing provides access to an airing cupboard, the loft, two double bedrooms, a single bedroom and the family bathroom. The principal bedroom has a bay window that allows plenty of light into the room, while the second bedroom benefits from fitted wardrobes with sliding mirrored doors.

The impressive, elegant fully tiled family bathroom has a white suite comprising a panelled bath with a wall-mounted rainfall shower with and curved shower glass shower screen, a low-level WC and a wash hand basin with mixer tap set into a vanity unit that provides storage below and a heated towel rail.

A low brick wall encloses a well-established front garden with a paved driveway that gives access to the front door and a wooden side access gate on the right, which leads to the rear. A particular feature of the property is the fabulous garden. Adjacent to the house is a brick-built outbuilding with a further storage building attached, providing plenty of outdoor storage space. Immediately to the rear is a paved terrace with a path that guides you to a further paved seating area on the right-hand side. A pathway leads you through the garden, which is bordered by wooden fence panels. Mainly laid to lawn, there is a wonderful array of beautiful mature plants, shrubs, hedges and trees that also offer a good degree of seclusion.
